The Florentine or Woodland Tulip is a European native introduced very early into American gardens.  Although Thomas Jefferson did not mention this species in his Garden Book, it is now naturalized through the West Lawn at Monticello.  It blooms with the Virginia Bluebells in mid-April.  Florentine Tulips have a distinctly sweet fragrance and multiply freely once planted, two qualities lost with the development of modern Tulip cultivars.
